This beautiful girl was brought in by two women who claimed to have her straying. They said they had never seen her before. Dixie however seemed inordinately attached to them, and she panicked as they left, and spent the following days grieving in her kennel. Whenever the staff approached her kennel, her ears would prick up at the sound of footsteps and she looked expectantly to see if her beloved people had come back for her. It has taken her a little while to resign herself to the fact that they are not coming back.
Like most dogs, Dixie is slowing getting over her distress at being abandoned, and is starting to make friends with the staff and volunteers, and the doggy welcoming committee, which was wonderfully represented by Sully pup yesterday!
We don't know what Sully pup was whispering to Dixie, but it seemed to do the trick, and Dixie is now settling into the routine of kennel life and looking forward to meeting her forever family.
Dixie is a very cuddly girl, she loves nothing more than being close, and although she is carrying a few extra pounds at the moment she will still take any opportunity to sit on the nearest lap for comfort
If you'd like more information or would like to meet Dixie please contact the staff at Newport City Dogs Home on 01633 290902 or pop in. No appointment needed but please telephone for opening hours.
